Democracy and Human Rights, Paperback Book

Democracy and Human Rights Paperback



What is democracy? How do we know when we have it? Is liberal democracy merely one, or the only, version of democracy, realizable at governmental level?

What is the relation between democracy and human rights?

Do economic and social rights really count as human rights, and are they necessary to democratic citizenship?

These are some of the questions addressed in this original book.
